The hotel is around 25 minutes by taxi from the airport depending on traffic which costs around 50 dollars. The hotel has nice reception area, and we were upgraded to a family room, which consisted of lounge/bedroom area and seperate bedroom, the room had air con, complimentary toiletries replenished everyday, free safe, iron, ironing board, hairdryer, free wifi, coffee percolator,...

After arriving from Sydney to San Fran via lax, long flight with kids, the hotel decided to upgrade us to a larger room 226 which was nice of them however delayed us further by 2.5hrs from being allowed into the room to freshen up and rest which further agitated the already jet lagged and weary kids. The room itself had... More

The main selling point of this hotel for me is the location. Right in the heart of union square, just up a little from market street. We had no problem accessing the nearby tram or busses. Quickly and easily in lots of different parts of the city; as well as conveniently located for a pit stop or to drop shopping... More

We spent 3 nights at this hotel at the start of our recent US adventures. Pro's: central location, free breakfast provided as part of the package Con's: very noisy room, facing the street (I needed to use the earplugs that were provided!) We caught the BART train from the Airport, which was inexpensive and took about 20 mins, and then... More

Stayed for 4 nights in September. Location is great for all attractions but beware, the noise from the road outside is unbelievable. We were, however, in the historic part of the hotel in a standard room. Dust carts, lorries reversing, police sirens..you will hear them all (but unfortunately at any time between 10pm and 6am!!). the hotel does supply complimentary... More

Staying 3 nights here. Allocated a premier room on the 8th floor overlooking the pool area. Check in was very quick and straightforward. Staff (Nanny) very helpful. Received a complimentary newspaper under the door in the morning. Parking $57 a night so adds $171 to the bill. All areas very clean. Lovely soft bed, safe and fridge in room. Wasn't... More

We had a very nice 5 day stay in this four star hotel. The hotel restaurant was very good with quite reasonable prices. It is, however, very busy so make sure your make a dinner reservation earlier in the day. Breakfast is also very busy so you may have to wait for 20/30 mins or so. The staff were friendly... More
